Let's get to know Encore Bank employee Dana Cook, who has been with Encore Bank since 2021.
Job Title: SVP, Audit Manager
Business Email: email@example.com
What does your day-to-day look like? I work with the CAO and audit team to prioritize, schedule, and oversee internal audit activities and help facilitate external audits.
How did you end up in the banking industry? I am not sure I choose banking, more like stumbled into it. I worked as a teller through college and when I graduated, the President of the bank suggested that I apply to one of the regulatory agencies. I was lucky enough to get a job with a regulatory agency and learned a lot about all areas of a bank. Through contacts I'd made, I eventually ended up at a local bank.
What or who led you to Encore? An opportunity to work with a great team and a challenge.
How would you describe Encore's culture as a whole? The culture is very inviting and family-like.
How would you describe your work style? Organized and detailed, with a little chaos mixed in for fun.
What does Building Something Different mean to you? It means thinking outside the box and considering alternatives from the way we've always seen things done at other banks.
It's 7 AM and your day just started. What's in your cup? Coffee!
It's your day off, where can we find you? Spending time with my family and friends.
Who is the most influential person in your life? My grandfather. He was a very hard worker and overcame the challenges of losing his larynx from throat cancer. He always taught us to be determined but also to take time for laughter and family.
What are you looking forward to this year? Our family vacation!
Give me a fun fact! I graduated high school in a class of 23.
